Ups and Downs

I came down with a horrible shivery lurgy yesterday and Sam was even feeling ill enough to declare Flip Out a no show. 
A quiet day was declared. Some maths, english, latin and spanish were done but only a little and nothing taxing.
We started watching a documentary about electricity before iPlayer stopped working and we moved on to Joanna Lumley’s Japan.
Sam played computer, I soaked in the bath.  We sent Jack for Subway (little of what you fancy 😉 ) and watched Fantastic Beasts.
Today we both had more energy but not for a proper day out. Instead we finished off Sam’s English for the week, read the last of the science book and made a track for an avalanche.
While that dried we nipped into Gosport for some food shopping but pottered around the charity shops, caught some Pokemon and went to the park first. Back home I spent some time sorting out refunds after a workshop organised for next week was cancelled. Not having good luck on that front this year.
After that we tried tipping different ‘snow’ textures (flour, icing sugar, salt and rice) down Sam’s avalanche board.  
The rest of the day was all about games.  We’d ordered some yesterday from the Happy Puzzle Company because they has a sale and we were surprised to find them here when we got home a lunch time today.  Also picked up a 1979’s Rubiks game in a charity shop and Sam had bought a new DS game.
So we have been playing.  

This is the runaway favourite. Pentago – a strategy game that was the one that leapt out at us as very much both our thing and we were right.  Good battle although Sam as always in these things had the edge.
